football pool

A football pool is a gambling arrangement in which participants will buy squares in a 10x10 grid for a fixed price, typically initialing the squares they have bought. After the grid is filled, but before the game this pool is associated with begins, the organizer of the pool will randomly assign the ten digits to the rows and independently to the columns of the grid, one of these directions representing each team. The final digits of the final score (and in some pools, the score at the end of each quarter) will pay out the proceeds of the pool to the players who bought the corresponding squares.
